He’ll replace former Chelsea fullback Dan Petrescu at the Chinese Super League side. At FC Seoul he’ll be replaced by former Korean International teammate Hwang Sun-Hong, who previously managed Busan I’Park and Pohang Steelers.

Choi had a successful 3 and a half years at FC Seoul, winning the title back in 2012 and the FA Cup last season. The fans gave him a nice send off last night after his final game in charge vs. Ansan Mugunghwa (they won 2-1).
